Octaves and a Whole Lot More!

Bassists, take your bass tones places they've never been before with the Aguilar Octamizer analog octave pedal. Whether you're looking to dive deeper or add some funk to your sound, you can do it with the Octamizer. With an independent volume control for both the Clean and Octave sounds, finding the perfect balance is a snap. But the Octamizer doesn's stop there! A pair of filters lets you texture the octave-down sound and the clean sound separately. The Clean Tone control uses a Full Spectrum Tilt EQ that boosts treble while cutting bass or vice versa, giving you the ability to craft cool octave doubling effects or blend the two together for synth-y sounds. The multi-pole lowpass filter on the Octave Filter lets you dial in anything from round, smooth sounds to agressive, edgy tones.

Octave pedal

This pedal enhances some of my heavy metal grooves. Great for all kinds of metal. I love this pedal. Well worth the money. I am still exploring the dynamics of this pedal.

Love this Octamizer

I have been trying a few different Octive pedals and this is the one! It tracks better than the rest. The filter knob allows me to get different tones, and the ability to adjust the clean level is great.

Great For How I Use It

I bought one of these based solely on reviews and recommendations, never having used an octave pedal myself before. I'll be honest, this pedal does not track the octave well...but after trying out octave pedals from MXR and such, they all kinda track the same! (at least with my bass). So on it's own, completely dry ...not all that different from any other out there. Now what I meant when I sad 'great for how I use it', my wife an I are a bass/vocal duo and I play a lot of chordal melodies over loops. I like to use the Octamizer before a reverb, chorus & delay very subtly for a layering effect as I'm usually high mid/treble happy on my solo stuff & it just adds a nice color when everything is put together. One thing I haven't seen in any reviews on this pedal is that if you have a light enough touch, you can get this pleasant muted tone in the higher registers that I find pretty neat and a plus for this lil guy. My 2 cents: if you're looking for the 'it' octave pedal, it's just personal preference as they all do about the same to me, but this one is pretty great for how I use it.

Returned the pedal

I was surprised that this pedal worked so poorly, especially after viewing several Aguilar-sponsored video clips. I could not make it do anything the demonstrations showed. When it did track a signal, there was a significant (though slight) pause before the octave signal kicked in. Often, as other reviewers have noted elsewhere, there was a muddle of electronic noise. At its best, the Octamizer would track a signal if notes were played slowly.
